Wednesday narrowly failed to get promoted to the Premier League at the end of last season and will be aiming to finish in the top six of the Championship again during the 2017-18 campaign.

Mulgrew would be a good signing for the Owls, as he is a quality footballer who also has a year’s experience of playing in the Championship.
